the river to virginia to what organizers called a restore the constitution rally. it was held in national parkland along the potomac in virginia so that those attending could bring their firearms. it was an honest crowd and many were quick to label those as the fringe element. whatever you call them, their disaffection was very real. >> a pump shotgun. the primary i guess you call it home defense weapon. because with a shotgun, you can neutralize a threat, although i hope i never have to do that. what people miss is that obama has outpushed bush in, you know, kind of the disdain for the constitution. i think he's carried on the negative policies of bush. we are still overseas, and the president said that he was going to bring our troops home. and that has not happened. >> hillary clinton announced at the beginning of the year that she was going to work with the u.n. on the small arms treaty. so assuming that passes, they're going to find some way to -- to logistically get around the constitution to take away the right to bear arms. >> have you always felt that way in terms of frustration
